Decades of unrest and growing tensions in the Middle East have led to an Arab Awakening. The ongoing turbulence created by the Arab Awakening is the impetus of a multitude of changes in the Arab and Muslim world. Melamed's presentation unfolds the Middle Eastern fabric from Israel, the West Bank and Gaza to North Africa, Iran and Central Asia by exploring the underlying factors, the complex and intertwined layers, the major players and the core forces in the Middle East today. Avi Melamed is a Middle East Strategic Intelligence Analyst and lecturer specializing in the current affairs of the Arab and Muslim world and their impact on Israel and the region.
